Great to see some builds progressing.

Well I have paint and decals on, and am starting the weathering.





Now I really need to get started on the base.....

Steph...Thanks for the pictures,they really help.They give me a good idea of what to look forward to.
Dani... Great work dude,everything looks sweet and the base is awesome.I'm not looking forward to painting my figure.I have not done very many and the guy is REALLY small
Kevin... Well I guess now I know what the base looks like .X-cell-ent.I can see I'm in way over my head with you guys as far as bases go.
I did manage to get some primer on my build and am getting ready to start painting.Should have pics to show soon.Jeff T.

Beautiful M-24 Chaffee, Steph. I love the heavily worn white wash.

Great Comet, Kevin. I really like how you spiced up the base. Looks very realistic - especially considering the scale.

Dani, that base looks awesome! Almost a pity to cover it up with vehicles;) looking forward to see it finished.

It looks like marking for a capture vehicle, you can leave the German Cross off, and it should be ok.
